Asia Time Zones

Asia uses a total of 13 different time zones, ranging from UTC+2 to UTC+9.

8 time zones coincide with the meridians multiples of 15º = 60 exact minutes, and

5 time zones are in intermediate meridians of 30 and 45 minutes. (four of 30' and one of 45'). These intermediate time zones, are highlighted with different colors to the usual 4 (yellow - orange - green - pink).
Asia Time Zones

Asian countries with daylight saving time

West Asia, specifically the UTC+2 in standard time / UTC +3 in summer time or what would be the same EET / EEST (Easter European Summer Time), which includes the countries: Lebanon - Cyprus - Israel - Jordan - Palestinian Territories - Syria, all of them advance 1 hour during summer time.

Iran, with the standard time zone UTC+3:30 advances the clock 1 hour during daylight savings time.

Both time zones usually advance the time towards the end of March. Iran turns back the hour in September, and West Asia back the hour in October. More info in Asia daylight saving or in calendar Daylight saving calendar.

Asian countries with 1/2 hour time zones

Asia has 4 countries that adapt their time zone, right in the middle of the meridians multiples of 15º equivalent to 1 hour.
That is, they use time zones adapted to the 30-minute (1/2 hour) time slot, instead of 1 hour.

Those countries are: Iran - Afghanistan - India - Myanmar (Burma). Iran being the only one of the 4 countries that uses summer time. See Asia map

Iran      Afghanistan
UTC +3:30 / +4:30 UTC +4:30
India Myanmar (Burma)
UTC +5:30 UTC +6:30

Nepal, a country with a 3/4-time slot

In the Northeast part of India, Nepal is located, with UTC +5:45 time zone, that is with an interval of 3/4 of 1 hour or 45 minutes. Which can be somewhat more complex to calculate the difference with other different time zones.

Although to make a faster calculation, it is enough to know the time zone of India +5:30 and add 1/4 of an hour more (15 minutes), or what would be the same, subtract 15 minutes to the time zone of Bhutan or Bangladesh both UTC +6:00 with which we would obtain the time of Nepal.

UTC +5:30
UTC +5:45
Bangladesh/Bhutan

Time Zones colors

4 colors to differentiate the time zones - - - that conform to the time bands of 1 hour = meridians of 15º.

In turn, these colors can be practical to visualize the time difference between countries with the same color, since they are multiples of 4 hours. (4 colors).

For example, if we want to visualize the time difference between Israel and Bangladesh as quickly as possible (as both have the same brown-orange color), we will know that the time difference between both will be 4 hours or multiples of 4 hours, (except when one of these countries, this using daylight saving time and the other not)

More Ex.: The time difference between Saudi Arabia and Thailand both in yellow (if both countries continue like this, without using summer time), the time difference between these countries will always be 4 hours. The same would happen with the rest of the colors. See Asia map

Israel    / Bangladesh
UTC +2:00 / 3:00 UTC +6:00
Saudi Arabia Thailand
UTC +3:00 UTC +7:00

Intermediate Time Zones in Asia

There are 5 countries in Asia that do not adjust to the exact time 60 minutes corresponding to meridians multiples of 15º.

To differentiate these 5 countries from the rest, 5 additional colors have been associated with these intermediate time slots. In this way, it can be easier to distinguish them from most countries that adhere to the 1-hour time slot.

There are 4 countries with a time zone that fit the 1/2 hour time slot, and the 5th Nepal, which fits the 3/4 hour time slot. All 5 appear with different colors.

These 5 countries with intermediate time zones are: Afghanistan - India (Sri Lanka) - Iran - Myanmar - Nepal
